Why the Instructor matters.....
It is common knowledge that someone's ability to shoot is completely unrelated to their ability to teach some one else to shoot. Our instructors shoot with and against the best tactical long range shooters in the world. Many of the best shooters in the country have absolutely no interest or ability to teach and they will tell you that themselves. Our staff of instructors composed of Paul McCoy, David McNeil, and Matt Partain are widely known and respected both as shooters and as instructors. These guys all remember what it was like to be the new shooter with way more questions than answers. Our instructors are patient and deliver subject matter in easy to understand terms. They also take the time to explain the logic and physics behind what they are asking you to do. The goal for our courses is for the shooter to leave competent through an understanding of the subject matter that allows them to continue to grow and solve problems on their own.
